Description

Hop School is back in Session!

Join us to learn about Ruhstaller's history, the history of hop cultivation, how we grow beer, and to have a hand in helping us grow hops.

Hop School 2018 features 5 stages held over 6 classes. Each class will be held on Saturday morning, starting at 7am.

To gain a full experience on the farm, we recommend taking one class in the first 3-4 stages, and then returning for harvest.




Tuition: $30 per class

Includes: 1 beer, lunch, and a $10 donation to the Center for Land Based Learning

Location: Ruhstaller Farm & Yard - 8949 Olmo Lane Dixon, CA 95620 (off the I-80 at exit 69, Kidwell Road)

Time: 7am - noon

Class Notes:

- Tuition is non-refundable

- Classes are limited to 20 students, so register early!

- The hands-on portion of class will include working on the Ruhstaller Hop Yard. We highly recommend you wear a wide-brimmed hat, a light-weight long-sleeved shirt, long pants, work-boots and gloves. Bring plenty of water and extra sunscreen. The field can be muddy, the hoppies are scratchy and the sun gets strong.

- Children are welcome to attend class with a parent or guardian. But please keep in mind that many activities and tools are not suitable for young children.

- Class is for humans only, no pups, please.
